“It was a pretty difficult choice,” Ashworth stated after departing Brighton earlier this year. Because I wasn’t seeking for work, I thought about it for a long time and took it seriously.
I didn’t apply for the job, but I’ve enjoyed my time in Brighton. It’s a fantastic club, very well run, with excellent people to work with, and Tony and Paul (Barber) operate it well.
“You speak about employment having push or pull aspects, but there were none in this case. It wasn’t a case of wishing you could alter something.
I have truly loved my time in Brighton, both as a visitor and as a resident. The support I’ve received from staff and supporters, as well as players and others, has been outstanding.
“It’s been a really difficult choice.” When I’ve left positions before, it’s seemed like the proper moment or there were external pressures, but that wasn’t the case here, and I can only speak well of the club, its structure, and its personnel.”
